european union's main body you to accept the nobel peace prize at a grand ceremony and also live before the prize was even hundred out hundreds marched through the center of the norwegian capital protest comes on the heels of several previous winners and suing an open netted a nobel foundation claiming that the e.u. does not deserve the award but artie's the owner found out these are the only issues on the bond the credibility of the prize. remark or little children. will one day live in a nation where they will not be deterred by the call about them but by the content of their character our time the one that can lead probably would have you come to the home. however the nobel peace prize is only awarded to a living person but this is when a test search criteria especially when it comes to finances the announcement the european union. was to pick up the twenty twelve gong sparked
a heated debate the award was being discredited particularly after the outrage it was picked it up recently to be frank inside the united states i don't think very many people pay attention to the nobel peace prize anymore large numbers of americans were stunned when yasser arafat received the nobel peace prize many years ago president obama was given a prize for reasons that no one understood see what's. done over the last twelve months to convince the nobel committee it's worthy of such a prestigious award. it supported regime change in foreign countries and several member states indulged in violent crackdowns on demonstrators outraged by the failure of the government's. skeptics and i think it devalues the whole concept of the peace prize what's really happening is that the european union is having its worst year ever but its mates and the international community are
coming to it's a bridge to have been awarded of the announcement to be made in the very week that i went to athens i was greeted not just by tens of thousands of protesters but people dressed up in swastikas and giving it. frankly i grew up in a europe that was divided from east to west but i'm now living in a europe that is divided from north to south and never at any point in the history of this union has there been more discord and rancor that we currently got among more moderate voices there are concerns the peace prize is being used as a political football i think this award basically does a lot of discredit past people who won this prize i mean it demonstrates a sort of heavy politicization of the use of this war and now it's been suggested that this year's winner of the peace prize picked it up more for not having done something as opposed to having food the peace or. around the globe it seems like
they got the prize more because there hasn't been any war in europe for many decades rather than having done anything specific i think as long as civic institutions like the nobel prize continue to lose their legitimacy and their spirit through political favorites and these prizes are always political but obvious political favoritism and maneuvering i think it actually takes something away and i think it's actually damaging leaves the whole institution of the prize facing the question whether the nobility is being drained from the nobel peter all of. the greek prime minister has visited varia in an attempt to restore some faith in athens. says a trip to germany region comes after greece set in motion a plan to buy back some of the country's debt to qualify for more financial aid from the e.u. and the i.m.f. a constitutional law professor george got us believes the way the union chose to deal with the crisis is unsustainable so might as. well.
listen. but unfortunately. it isn't easy to. control just that you're going to. be. fun. but of course it's real easy for you to so. it's so. simple you see. more. people. will go to. where is the e.u. pursuing the goal of a united europe at the expense of individual nations take center stage in the latest edition of people crosstalk just over an hour's time. of course the european union has to be based on subsidy or it's
a principle which means that the decisions are made close as possible to the citizens on the other only or is that indication is that pick a song sure thing is that the case let me finish yeah yeah of course about dontcha think that. in a case that a federal union exist it with a federal strong budget that the sovereignty of the european citizens over all would be better than we have now in that crisis we are all victims at the moment because we do not have a fully fledged. my question is did people join to create something like the united states yeah i mean they are going to join it to create a united states of europe that it has to be discussed i'm saying yes there is an alternative to that and if they don't want to be. bound to a federal union or european union or stay the united states of europe they can of course leave or negotiate the treaties.
bahraini opposition groups say they're ready for open dialogue with the government without preconditions but they want any progress put to a referendum this comes after a recent appeal for face to face negotiations by the monarchy scene is essential to quelling recent unrest that's next here reports it's unclear if that turned into gulf state is any closer to finding the road to peace. sadiq says his life was shattered his sits on a municipal council in bahrain and several months ago he was shot by police during a peaceful protest looking at his injuries his lucky to be alive but a bit online while i was with many of the protesters when we were faced by riot police they did not hesitate to shoot us directly to the head with the bullets the police are using for hunting birds and animals i've been shot with over one hundred ninety two pellets scattered all over my body in the head face arms and legs the
most dangerous ones are those inside my lungs. is just one of hundreds who have suffered in the anti-government protests that started around twenty months ago when revolution fever was sweeping the middle east and north africa the descent in bahrain differs little from that in nation swept by the arab spring but the story about a stop it is a belief in different areas against the regime against the direction of against the situation. one thousand five hundred has another we have. every day we have a lot of. security forces surrounding the area so i think the people at that house and given the outcome of the arab spring of evils bahrain's ruling elite is doing its best to stamp out revolt the government recently slapped a ban on all public gatherings bahrain's chief of police says it's not permanent but it is necessary we have introduced
a temporary restriction on gatherings and protests and that is. one reason because lately we have seen these gatherings. taking more violent. methods than one year we had over four hundred protests and that's more than one protest a day and we have tried to solve the problem however they didn't seem to be able to control protests and the gatherings despite the ban and the risk of arrest people are still gathering the hard core of the protests comes from poor neighborhoods as soon as we reached one we immediately and counted a small and peaceful anti governmental rally. some are simple to estimate how many people were actually taken by them just a moment in better way to say that these protesters are being supported by the local shia community which may come up to seventy percent of this country's population. the ruling elite are sunni muslims and this may look like
a sectarian war but the authorities firmly reject their actions are religiously motivated there is a radical movement in the opposition party they are hardliners they want to see regime change they want to implement their own style of government they seek a secretary in theocracy and that is unacceptable saw because i feel out of desperation they know that they don't have the support of the rest of the population of bahrain they have turned to these violent means the protests are gathering momentum and allegations of torture in prisons are leading to serious international pressure being put on my mama so bahrain's rulers find themselves in a tough position they want dialogue with dissenters but the question is whether they will be satisfied with what the king has to offer. r.t. reporting from the kingdom of bahrain. on the way there is no let up in colorado as the gyptian opposition stands for what it's about despite concessions from the
president or the. looters that takes your breath away a few tourists travel to these paul it's no prepackaged confort but the joy of the wild is guaranteed if gagne's a zoology professor he works in the u.s. and travels to these remote areas in washington every summer as he says he confines untouched landscapes like this anywhere else in the world we're going off the list below sea line if i go wrong the wrong and surprise you will go straight to the water and so we did. one animal whose par you definitely wouldn't want to shake here is the brown bear you can literally spot agrees the here by every small river. where the bears are fishing but they have
a very concise as well to be able to see that we have to keep an eye a wind direction and the distance between them and also told that could be dangerous so we're going just a shell but the record. and quietly went but the wind was not on our side and the bear got away another local resident who hates his piece being disturbed here is this callous sea eagle it has a wingspan of two and a half meters it ness only here in washes far east because of the bundles of salmon and seagulls which feed the giant bird in his studies if gainey focuses on birds so he took me to one of his favorite places here the mara island it has the biggest colony of seagulls in the region. the climb back up was tough but the prize was worth it. maybe
wealthy british style. markets. can find out what's really happening to the global economy for a no holds barred look at the global financial headlines to cause a report on our. news for you and the opposition in egypt gearing up for more protests and say they'll boycott a referendum on the draft constitution president bush has already given up his new sweeping powers but fail to appease his opponents as he maintains the poem the new charter will proceed next weekend well john the true is in cairo with the very latest. this morning president mohamed morsi. the decision to increase

protest was arranged by a new coalition of islamic forces supports the president's own choose day. they said they want to have a million people on the streets in support of the president of course with the background of violence on wednesday between rival protest groups right here at the presidential palace which bloody scenes in the streets of cairo such a recent eight we've now been told the president has also made a tree to step in and secure the nation in addition to giving them power to arrest citizens this has been much criticism from the protesters who feel the military will take a heavy hand this comes after. egypt hosni mubarak stepped down last year which witnessed quite a heavy and bloody crackdown on protesters during the last two in that transition period last night at the protest in front of the presidential palace protesting school. footage of the military's human rights violations towards protesters on the
screens of a president the president said on the walls of the presidential palace they said to remind people of what the military capable of right now the republican guard still have their tanks outside the palace they have erected twelve foot barriers which the protesters did not push through but it's still a sign that maybe we'll see more tanks on the streets as a descent continues in the lead up to this controversial referendum. well unless the will amend else says egyptian that minorities will bear the brunt if the muslim brotherhood's constitution comes into force the whole decree was a saint to begin with the law of the christian through. the proposed new castle to chanelle on the referendum for the fifteenth of december not given the opposition and the liberal groups and the second. time to really debate it openly in the countries of the borders and form choice the coptic christian groups are threatened if the book brotherhood gets its constitution and imposing sharia law other groups
of muslims for example their places of worship are under attack in egypt and likely will be increasingly actual so this is really a major major future of. democracy in egypt. and one of the season former rivals for the presidency is now a prominent opposition leader he says the political crisis is no excuse for the failure to solve the key social challenges where is a preview of the full interview on air at eight hundred thirty g.m.t. . fifty percent of the country. is lives in poverty the illiteracy the that unemployment the other problems that have not been addressed something this moment this is the point that one many of us as citizens i was liberals i snuck through the stuff believe that we are losing time.
if we come to a conclusion and do a national constitution that with the care of everything national conciliation is our responsibility as a society but. it is the responsibility of the president the government and that is . this is the point it is their disposal between two big pool solution to the deal to start working to deal with because of the society because there is a back and i want them to do for all a difference who is about the constitution but this should not cause or stop the government from moving on dealing with the problems that we as people feel that they have to be addressed and as immediately as we go. we want to syria now russia says there's no evidence the government in damascus
will use chemical weapons i think that it but he's the biggest threat to the country is if the militants get their hands on the arsenal and washington is also concerned about the weapons and is laying down a red line threatening repercussions if they're used by either side given dances on the battlefield this is why the russians now get a home invasion meanwhile rebel groups are united on the one but it can command the latest western support to topple the assad party spoke to a political activist who says fighters could stage a chemical attack discredit the government and his opinion pave the way for military intervention. and the danger is that the west is aware of such materials in syria but at the same time it's going to be used against the syrian government as a pretext for intervention united states has recently started listing parts of the syrian armed opposition all of the armed opposition in syria as terrorist
organizations that say something that is probably aware of that part of the of the armed opposition in syria and probably they it seemed most powerful part of the armed opposition who are do you know sir front probably aren't possession of so such materials and probably are planning to use them. well despite a suspected technical delay north korea is this month expected to launch a rocket which it says is carrying a new scientific satellite that's according to a south korean newspaper reports like images suggests a new component is being moved from a missile plant in on to replace a faulty part of the rocket launcher has been condemned by the south as well as japan and the united states they believe it's a disguised test of a long range missile being developed to carry nuclear weapons. dozens of u.s. national security professionals have published a report suggesting that america should ease sanctions on iran from the pending
